Dallas is called by mother - alien comic page

Pg.5: Captain's Eyes Only [c.1982 or 83?]

Art Notes

Still borrowing from the official adaptation like all of these pages. Brett looks quite comical in panel 1 - not his usual ambivalent, reticent self. Lambert gets a look in here, but she's silent. Did you know that the actor Veronica Cartwright was in The Birds? You'd know those eyes anywhere.

Father Ted and Father Dougal getting sprayed with raw sewage. Nice.

In panel three, Dallas is creatively bathed in yellow tungsten light from the computer room - or is he being sprayed with something? Once inside, he sits and operates the control panel as if he's never pushed a button before. Oo-oo - ah-ah! Well done, Bongo. Have a banana!

The computer room, where Dallas convenes with Mother - the ship's computer - was only known to me visually, before I did this second adaptation, from Cracked magazine's version.

Star Wars: age 9

All of this started here - in 1977. On the bedroom floor with office paper, biros, markers and the self-assuredlness of a 9 year old.

It's dafter, it's funnier, it's followed by Official Star Wars Twitter and Mark Hamill "loves it!".

Yes, it's Mid-Life Crisis Pt.I.

The Battle (War Pigs)

A comic which may - or may not ever be published. Made 1 and a half times, between 1981(?) and 1983(?). Yes, as usual, I took more than one swipe at it.

I get very excited about this occasionally, but then I re-read it and feel embarrassed.
